Risk of getting pregnant at age 50

Getting pregnant can be hard at the best of times but when you're over a certain age unfortunately things can get even harder. We spoke to Professor Geeta Nargund, Medical Director at Create Health, to find out all you need to know about getting pregnant after 40 so you can be as prepared as you need. Not to paint a bleak picture but naturally risks are heightened in pregnancies after the age of 40.


But there is no denying that the chances of getting pregnant naturally after the age of 40 significantly drop. But don’t be disheartened there is a much more positive picture that has only just come into play.The NHS National Guidelines for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines have just had a recent update from their 2004 requirements of IVF only allowing women up to the age of 39 to have the treatment on the NHS. A woman’s egg supply is naturally going to decrease as she ages and with the eggs that remain there is a heightened chance of chromosomal problems like Down's Syndrome, birth defects and miscarriage.
